    Does your preacher smoke cigars?

    Does your preacher smoke cigars? Mine does. :D :D :D

    Does your preacher smoke cigars?

    HEY! You stole my sermon! :) This is exactly what I used to preach when I was REALLY against smoking. The problem with the interpretation is CONTEXT. (A text without it's context is a pretext.) ;) Anyway, when someone now challenges me with this particular Scripture, interpreted this way...

    Opus is in..

    If it's the same shop...and I don't know how it couldn't be...they had a few Opus' in July. They only had one large size and they had a few small size. I think they wanted $19.95 for the large RG and $14.95 for the smaller RG...but I could have the prices wrong. They had a few Tats, but I...

    I'm in BIG TROUBLE!!!

    As one Arkie to another, I am really sorry about your job situation. I agree with the other poster. You can probably sell off the cigars you don't want. Take care and good luck in your job search!

    Has anyone tried the Nub Cameroon 460?

    I liked it a lot better than I did the Nub Conn. But I'm not a big fan of Conn wrappers. Not a bad smoke but not as good as the Hab. Just one man's opinion.

    5 Vegas Classic Robust

    I agree, the Classics aren't for me. However, the Cask Strength and the 5 Miami's are both very good smokes, imho.

    Bundle Cigars - Which Are The Best?

    For the most part, I'm still a bundle smoker. The FdO's are a very good cigar. The GR Special Reds are also good, although they are pretty hit and miss, sometimes in the same bundle. The Famous Nic 3000 are my all time favorite.

    Looking for bundle recomendations

    I heartily agree. The GR's are a very good "cheaper" stick and I've smoked a lot of them. Also, you might want to check out the Spirit of Cuba by Alec Bradley. Comes in three wrappers and two sizes.

    Tinder Box absorbed by CI???

    My question was going to center around the 5 Vegas as well. I always thought that 5 Vegas was only sold by CI...however on a recent trip to Maine I found the 5 Vegas Cask Strength at a private shop.

    El Mejor Expresso

    Thanks for the review. I had never had these until someone gave me one at our Hillbilly Herf. I liked it and won a bundle on cbid. They really grow on you and I really like them now. The construction is a little hit and miss. I've had some out of the same bundle where the draw was so tight...

    Shipping trouble with the Devil

    I hate to tell you this, :) ... but I ordered from Famous once and it took them a little over a week to get to me...but this could have been UPS' fault. To be fair to cbid, the first time when I won a bundle that was backordered, they sent them to me USPS and got them to me the next day after...

    Shipping trouble with the Devil

    The only problems I've had with cbid has been the last two times I've won bids from them. Both times the cigars were backordered and we were bidding on cigars they didn't have in their possession. The second time I emailed them and asked them if they had the cigars and was assured they did and...

    Devil site!

    Great job! I'm glad your cbid experience was a good one for you and all worked out. I'd like to say I had similar experiences but I can't. I posted a while back that I had won a bid on a bundle that was not in stock. Well, would you believe that it happened again to me, even though I wrote...

    yellowish cellophane wrap on cigars

    Yup, this is a GOOD thing. A friend of mine just got back from a town and had found some sticks that had yellowed cello. He gave me one and I've got it in my humi and it will probably stay there for a while. I've never had a stick with yellowed cello before. It is a Torano of all things, but...
